David Beals has this business in his blood. Literally. In 1974, his father Stan Beals became a founding partner of Jones Lundin Beals, one of the earliest, most respected client-agency consultancies in the U.S. In 2002, after a long career on the agency side, Dave Beals bought the firm, became CEO, and in 2010 he took it global. Jones Lundin Beals joined the Asian consultancy R3 to form R3:JLB, the only global consultancy dedicated to helping marketers improve the value and productivity of their marketing agency relationships. He has been a valuable partner to a diverse group of clients including the U.S. Army, S.C. Johnson, Wal-Mart, Whirlpool, Cisco Systems, Johnson & Johnson, Michelin, Merck, Welch’s, Allstate, Wrigley and Visa, to name just a few.
